I have a 1995 ford mustang 3.8 5 speed and i just put new plugs wires on the car and the engine still shakes it shakes so hard it shakes the whole car im at a loss can anybody tell me what it is and is it...


There are so many causes, electrical, plugs, fuel injectors, timing order, Think of what's been done check history of prior repairs, try to read codes , w/o knowing your mech. back round ,I would take my time and research the Motors Manual or Chiltons auto repair manual on line or at library.

I own a 2012 chevy impala Lt soemtimes when i start my car my stablitrak, traction control, ABS light and service tire monitoring system light come on but most of the times they come on when i'm driving...


Brakes have nothing to do with all those codes

After the brake work, the shop can road test &
diagnose the codes for you.

If you get the codes you can google them & see
what they mean

Wiring diagram citroen xsara 2000


I see several different problems here.

First, installing aftermarket accessories like remote starts and alarm systems is asking for electrical problems with your vehicle. Those things are known to cause all kinds of problems including stalling, incorrect air/fuel ratio, and no-starts. Not to mention that the vehicle wiring harnesses usually get BUTCHERED in the process of installing them. They also make diagnosis of future problems (like stalling, no-starts, or computer fault codes) nearly impossible because the repair technician has no way of knowing if the aftermarket accessories are at fault or if it is being caused by a malfunction in the factory equipment.

Then, if you do not know where to start, it makes me question whether you should be messing with the electrical (and most likely, computer) circuits in your vehicle to begin with.

In addition to that, there is no way that anyone can help you to perform that task without having the instructions from the manufacturer of the system you are trying to install. Different systems tie in to different circuits in the vehicle. There is no way of knowing which vehicle circuits you are needing diagrams for. Did the system not come with instructions?

I have 2 recommendations for you:

1. Don't do it. If your vehicle is not equipped by the manufacturer with the options that you want, you are better off to save your money to buy a car that is.

2. If you choose to ignore recommendation number 1, I recommend that you seek the assistance of a qualified automotive repair technician in your area.

Is there a way to check the engine code manually in a 1997 lincoln town car?


Go to advance auto parts, wait around until a salesman has some time. He will put their code reader on it for free. He is not a mechanic however, so knowing the codes will not move you forward much. A dealer will charge you about a hundred bucks for their computer diagnosis, and you will know what is wrong and how much to fix. Then you can make the call about fixing it yourself or paying someone.
Once you have replaced a few parts that do not fix the problem, it suddenly seems to make more sense to find out what is wrong with it from someone who knows what they are doing even if you have to pay some money.

Hi I have a 1994 firebird v6 3.4 liter engine, my engine light goes on when I drive at cruse speed 55 mph. the engine always runs smooth and when I stop the car for 1 minute and start it again the engine...


Your computer on your firebird is logging a trouble code when the check engine light comes on. Save yourself some money and go to a local parts store to use a scanner. Most parts stores will hook up to your car for free and tell you the codes that are being logged. You can spend a lot of money assuming what parts may be malfunctioning by just throwing parts at your car. Check it first and you will be money ahead.

1995 Nissan Altima Check Engine light came on.


Dear Brad: There are many auto parts houses out there which now offer free scanning for codes. Auto Zone is just one such retailer that offers this free service. They will scan the car for free giving you the codes and what the codes mean, but will not go into any great depth ans to what they mean unless you happen to get lucky and the person who does the scanning happens to be a tech. As far as I know, there is no means of testing for codes other than through the factory test tool or another generic test tool. As far a looking up what the codes mean, once you know what the codes are, you could go down to a book store like Barns and Noble and find a repair manuel that has the references. You don't have to buy the book to look up the code meanings and solutions, you can just write down the findings. Good luck
